Hello,

Firstly, you can give answer in German language since I understand it well, but my writing in German is bad so I don't do that.

Questions:
1. Can you add possibility for frames in window to change size or hide? I'd like to have larger frame with map, and I use diagram only after I analyse track in trackpont-table ("Trackpunkt-Editor") so diagram should be usually hidden.
2. When I change point in trackpoint-table then map jumps to this point which is exactly what I want, but I cannot change zoom manually. There is setting "Manuelles Zoomen" in settings that disables this sync between trackpoint-table and map and then zoom works, but I would like option that sync between trackpoint-table and map works and that I can also change zoom manually.

Background: For years I'm doing long trips (2 months) with bicycle and mountain-hiking-gear and after those trips I've analysed those trips in Garmin Basecamp. I'm using gps since 2000's and at that time there was no alternative for Garmin topo maps, but since several years offline OpenStreetMap map format (andromaps.org and others) are much better (and free) so I'm trying to move away from Garmin to software that works with these maps and on linux. I've made tests with such software (JGpsTrackEdit, BikeXperience, QMapShack, Viking, GpsPrune, GpsMaster) but all of them failed either at working with offline-maps mapsforgeserv-map or they had unusable trackpoint tables. Only TrackGuru survived all tests for efficiently replace Garmin Basecamp.

PS: Many years ago I also used GpsTrackAnalyse.Net.

To 1.:

Yes, I think it is possible to add sliding dividers between the different parts. Java supports that. But don't blame me if the layout looks like s**t then. :-)

To 2.:

The hard difference is deliberate. If you can both zoom manually but it jumps back to a position every time you click a point would probably be very annoying and confuse the hell out of the average user.

1. If dividers are clumsy, maybe you can add options in trackguru-cfg file so that users can manually write values for frame-dimensions (relative to window) in that text file before starting trackguru.

2. Do we think about same operation under zooming? In Basecamp it works like this:
- I click on point in trackpoint-table
- Basecamp centers map on that point with default zoom
- I change zoom - this means I change magnification of map but map remains centered on point in trackpoint-table
- I click on different point in trackpoint-table
- Basecamp centers on this new point but retains my magnification and doesnt return to default magnification

Good news, I think I was able to integrate both features for the next version. There is a divider now between map and diagrams, and a third selection mode which only centers.
